A great opportunity for all young families in the Benefice!

As a means of raising funds for the Roof Appeal at Kirby Wiske we are pleased to announce the following:

On Saturday 9th September at Carlton Lodge Outdoor Activity Centre, we have been given the opportunity to arrive at 12.30pm until 5pm and enjoy a full afternoon of fun-filled activities.

There will be trained Instructors on hand to assist young people (and the young at heart) to enjoy high level Zip Wires, Canoeing on the lake, together with a host of other activities.

Refreshments will be available with burgers and hotdogs to purchase for lunch along with a team of willing volunteers to serve hot and cold drinks all afternoon.

The cost for the day has been heavily subsidised with all the training being given free of charge. Admission is £10 per person over the age of 8 under 8’s are free. Or if you come as a family everyone gains entry with a £20 family ticket.

We really do hope that as many people young and older come along to support the day and have lots of fun together. Not only is this a great opportunity for us all to get together for a fun filled day which is only a few miles away at Carlton Miniott but it will also help to introduce new forms of engagement with young families which will address one of our current Mission Objectives.

If this goes well it would be great for us to book this venue on a number of occasions during the year, and it would be a great venue for an annual Benefice Fun Day to be introduced into our regular activity programme.

So can you please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to book a space and we will then have some idea of the level of support; Carolyne and I and our Dog Sitter Pauline will all be there canoeing and I hope to see you all flying down the Zip wire with me!

So let’s all have a fun filled day together!

Best wishes
